Beware of Rogue Security Software

It was a usual weekday, waking early, rushing to gym and turning back home, getting ready with a lightning fast speed, and then boarding the office cab to strike at the office cabin. Thank God I reached on time.

Still the fate had kept something else in the basket. I turned on my HP laptop to check about the daily assignments. I went through the Outlook, and was stuck at a mail, which was titled: “Get free virus removal tool”. It enticed me as I was looking for the same for the past few days. I clicked on the link, and it navigated to me a page asking certain information. I ran the file setup to scan my PC, and after a few minutes it came with a report mentioning various threats. Lastly, I clicked the “Fix” button.

I restated the system and was pretty happy to have been able to fix the long awaited problem. Oops! I was jolted, the machine was running even poor, and moreover the desktop was flooded with unusual icons. I was disgusted; I pulled up my colleague sitting in the adjacent cabin, to see what has gone wrong with the machine. He checked the status of the avast security software installed on the system. It had crossed the date of expiry; hence, the system was likely to be vulnerable. He asked, “Dude, have you installed something on it?” I simply nodded my head in negativity, but I had got the point and was reiterating actually. He might have read the situation, and then suggested me to go for avast support to seek experts’ help. He gave me the avast number, and I did no mistake. In a short I was connected with the avast help-desk. A technician took the hold of my PC, and manually removed all culprit soaked into the system software, later upgraded the avast software and asked me to restart the machine.

I did it, and everything was normal. Amazing avast help! I transacted the service charge on their payment portal, and resumed my work.

Now, I am committed to never go blindly on the lucrative offer through mail or other means, specifically when the concern is regarding security.

Good Hope from Bitdefender Rescue CD

Hi,
Have you ever been in booting issues with your Windows 7-based laptop? What exactly comes to your mind when you are unable to access it through “Safe-Mode”, i.e. the easiest way? Well, this is a very dreaded situation, and God forbid that you have to handle the one.
Yesterday, the weekend, I was the biggest loser. What I couldn’t have considered in dream took away my computing passion by a jolt. In fact, I had planned to pull off all pending tasks. But when I restarted my Toshiba laptop all was over. It was not ready to boot at all. What I could see was the azure-screen with some text lines in white. I was shocked at the moment. I could not understand, ‘how it can happen?’ I restarted the system in vain to fix the problem.
Lastly, I decided to go for online computer repair. I navigated to a trusted site, took the number and dialed it from my phone. A technician took the ownership of my sick machine. After formal registration he instructed me to download an .iso image from a given link and create a Bitdefender Rescue CD. I did so, and that was the correct antidote. It helped me to repair the Windows 7 successfully.
Afterwards, the technician helped me to repair the corrupted Windows files. He also gave the detail of the problem accordingly to which the system files were corrupted on account of computer viruses. It was hard to believe but the fact was in front of me. I asked for the suggestion so as to check any malicious intrusions. He gave me a link, which was comparing features between the latest 2012 version of Bitdefender Internet Security and Bitdefender Total Security, the two reliable products.
After a brief review I contacted the expert again, so as to install Bitdefender Internet Security 2012 on my machine. He instructed me step-by-step to install and configure it.

Install avast! When Things Have Gone Out-of-Control

Last Sunday I was searching for security software to shield my old HP desktop. Though, I had heard much about the latest version of avast Internet Security 2012 but being a big skeptic I can’t take it for granted.
I navigated few online portals to find avast review information so as to know practical opinion of masses and testing agencies pertaining to this product. I found all reviews quite encouraging. I liked the avast! SafeZone feature much, which creates a virtual PC in the eyes of outsiders, and protect your real machine and its data against malicious attack. This is exceptional as it would help in safe and secure banking and shopping which is the new passion.
Being fully convinced I downloaded the free version (valid for 30 days), to install avast! Internet Security 2012 on my machine. All went smooth, and I was glad to perform the task well.
But the moment of happiness was not lasting. Soon I realized that I actually did a blunder and nothing else. The browser service terminated with the error: “This operation returned because the timeout period expired.” First of all I tried to resolve the issues by clearing Cookies Cache, resetting Internet Explorer Settings, and trying to access the Internet through different web browsers, but that didn’t serve the purpose.
Eventually, I contacted an antivirus support portal over the phone which was available over the Internet. A technician helped me to uninstall avast software using an uninstaller tool and then shipped it again. Also, he configured the software for automatic update and scheduled scanning. He gave me a demo on ‘how to use it to perform scanning’ when urgently required.

SonicWall Setup and Configuration, Through Bonjour Protocol

All of a sudden, my printer went offline from the network. I tried everything what I could do to make it work, but all in vain. It was the first instance, since it had been installed last year. It shocked me as I have had a strong faith that there can be nothing wrong with my Mac computer network.
I contacted Apple, but it reverted saying ‘a network issue prevails’, may be related to the network firewall, which in my case was SonicWall. I did no mistake to escalate the matter to the SonicWall Support. Fortunately, a technician picked the phone to entertain the issue. He took some basic information and asked for the remote access of my iMac desktop; I agreed. Later on, I was just watching his acts on the screen, and he meticulously fixed the printer accessibility issues.
He offered me the entire solution-steps on my mail-id, which was related to SonicWall setup and configuration, using Bonjour protocol. You may also follow as:
1. Enable “Multicast” on Multicast Tab and Disable “Require IGMP Membership reports for Multicast Data Forwarding”
2. Under Multicast Policies Select “Enable Reception of all Multicast Addresses”
3. And then Click “Apply”
4. Navigate Firewall -> Access “Rule” and select “WLAN to Multicast Zone” and create a access rule which looks like this:-
a. Action – Allow
b. From Zone – WLAN
c. To Zone – Multicast
d. Service - Any
e. Source – Any
f. Destination – Any
g. User Allowed – All
h. Click “OK”
5. Then go to Firewall -> Access “Rule” and select “WLAN to LAN Zone” and create a access rule which looks like this:-
a. Action – Allow
b. To Zone – LAN
c. Service - Any
d. Source – Any
e. Destination – Any
f. User Allowed – All
g. Click “OK”
Hope, you will find the SonicWall help useful too.

A Complete Setup of My System on My Own

Last Sunday was a little hectic for me; as I spent half of my day, setting up my newly purchased system. I bought this beautiful piece of machine to stay connected with some of my relatives, who are living in different parts of this world. However, I am new to computers, but even then have a passion to resolve any of the technical issues on my own. At least, I give a try for sure, which I like about myself!

Luckily, I could perform the setup successfully with the help of a user guide, which was provided to me along with the system. Everything went on smoothly, as I was able to start and configure my system perfectly. I was overwhelmed, as I did everything on my own, without even consulting any technical specialist. I assuredly saved the setup fee for my system that I had to pay to some of the technicians for tweaking my system’s configuration.

Despite of possessing limited technical knowledge, I know that a virus is one of the deadliest enemies of a system, which could reduce the number of years from its lifespan. Keeping this in mind, the next step was to have a look on various security measures of my system, which could make it safer from those undesirable Internet attacks. After reading a few Avast reviews on the Internet, I was impressed by some of its features like e-mail protection, data security, encryption, data synchronization etc. I could also see the quick to follow steps to uninstall Avast, which is a little tricky in other security software applications. It was awesome!

Believe me guys! You can also install Avast antivirus within no time, as other than it’s highly rated security measures, it is powered with a user friendly framework that facilitated me to perform activation and setup at a supersonic speed.

Relieve Yourself from the Hitches of Uninstalling the Security Software

Is uninstalling antivirus software a rocket science? I kept asking myself this question for a longer period of time until my system’s issue was resolved. I have Norton Antivirus software installed on my system, and due to some modifications in my system’s data, I decided to uninstall antivirus from my system. I was in a bit hurry that day, so removed quickly and went out without even looking at its result, but, when I turned on my system in the morning again, it was showing an error messages, stating that auto protect feature cannot be activated.

I was surprised to see that, as despite of uninstalling the software from “Add/Remove” folder, it was generating an error message. But, on the other hand, it seemed to me that I did not remove antivirus software accurately. I am not a technical expert though, but I like resolving technical challenges on my own, and take them as a way of enhancing my technical skills. So, I goggled at a couple of technical support websites, and luckily found a resolution trick. However, the blog that I followed was made for technical experts only, but still I took a chance and followed its troubleshooting steps at my own risk.

I promptly followed the mentioned troubleshooting steps in that blog, and located the folder namely “Symantec Solutions”, which was present in the folder named as “Application” in the c: drive of my system. After that, I uninstalled various entries such as Norton Antivirus and Auto-Protect, which also asked me to supply administrator’s user-id and password. Next step was to restart my system, which quickly resolved the issue. I was overwhelmed by those troubleshooting steps, which were written in easy to understand language, and dint consume lots of time.

Moreover, I also educated about the same troubleshooting steps to some of my friends, who were encountering with the similar technical challenges associated with their antivirus security.
